Sounds like you read the same article that I did... I'm planning on doing this as well.  icon_cool

I had not read the article but that is exactly the drive I used.

As mentioned in the Destiny thread, upgraded my PS4 to a 2TB drive.  The process is very easy, though I do wish there was a "copy all saves for all games" option in the storage management menus.  The hardest part of the process was getting my new drive out of its enclosure as I had purchased an external drive to cannibalize as it was on sale for pretty cheap. 

The other advantage to grabbing the external drive is I should be able to put the enclosure back together with the old PS4 500GB drive and get an external drive in the process too, so that helps offset the already small cost to upgrade.

Where did you get a 2TB drive for $90? That's dirt cheap!

Just off Amazon, it's not a SSD or anything.  Also just 5400 RPM, though that is what comes default in the PS4, suppose I could have went for 7200.

This one, which you have to remove from the enclosure.  If you note the Amazon reviews some talk about using it for their PS4.

I've become so spoiled with not swapping disks that it more than makes up for lack of resale for me.  I also realized just how little I would play most steam titles if there was a physical swap needed.

Having 2 games on disk and the rest digital showed me that simply because it took more effort, i only played the digital and the game in the drive.  silly, but true.

I'm upgrading my PS4 to a 2TB drive this weekend just so I can keep more games on drive.  Drives are cheap too, only set me back 90 bucks.

I just reached the second Spring (the one following the cold Winter) this morning. Roughly how far into the game am I? I'm trying to finish the game off before I leave for PAX on Thursday evening.

Please no spoilers!!

You are in the final season.

I'm liking Akami ga Kill (Crunchyroll) a lot.  Sort of a bad guy of the week show but with a good pace and an overarching plot that is moving forwards.   Soul I think you would like this one based on the shows you listed before.   Fantasy world with a corrupt government and a group of assassins with legendary magic items trying to overthrow them.  It can be pretty brutal at times.  Show has already had at least two "oh shit" moments.

I'm also a bit over-leveled

There's no such thing in this game. All enemies scale to your level, which means you're free to do any content you want in the game at any time. Heck, if you want to, you could start Adventure Mode and go directly to Diablo himself at level 1.

Yeah you can't really be overleveled you can be over geared though.

For twinking, a high level red or yellow gem slotted in your weapon can make the first 40-50 levels a cakewalk.

Do they have the Show Advanced Tooltip setting in options like PC?

Looks like this movie has already left one of the two multiplexes that are convenient for us. Tuesday is its last day at the other one. I hope to be able to see it next Tuesday before it's gone.

It's still the seconds highest grossing movie out right now, doesn't really make sense to pull it.

I'm guessing most places are turning over for Labor Day weekend. It will still be showing through next weekend in some more distant theaters. Realistically, though, those aren't convenient so we won't see it if we don't go by Tuesday. Wife will be home that day so it should be doable. On the plus side ticket prices have fallen to $7.50 so we'll get out of it for $20 with popcorn.

Back when I used to go to movies regularly they stayed in theaters for months. Nowadays even the top movies seldom run for more than 4-6 weeks. Maybe Hollywood is just turning out too much product.

Still doesn't make any sense to pull the top grossing movie from your theater.  I suppose it might not be performing locally though.

Can't wait for 2.1 as the new Angel Hair Braid belt is going to have a passive that gives punish the effect of all runes!
Not sure if it's going to be a retroactive item change or not though, sometimes they aren't.  I have one in my stash though just in case  ninja

You should get FIFA on ps4 YK.  I doubt any of your Xbone friends will have it, and at least one of your PS4 friends will smile (I need to add you first of course)

Madden is getting better reviews this year.  If I didn't have so much to play already I'd get it.  I'm considering D3 though instead.

I'll be getting Fifa 15 for the PS4 as well, so make that two, and add me to your friends if you haven't already, its scraper on the PSN.

Also, the Infamous DLC comes out this week, so I'll be getting that.

It's not really DLC in the classic sense as it doesn't require Second Son.

Hit 70 tonight with my demon hunter (a class I barely touched on PC), which has been awesomely fun with a controller (especially having dodge controls). Right now I'm deciding what difficulty to continue at - I'm pretty much pouring through enemies at expert, and while master has twice the XP/gold, it's definitely slowing me down more than halfway. I'm only concerned about all the sweet, sweet drops I must be missing out on at lower difficulty.

My advice go to Master and once that becomes easy move Torment.  Torment is where the sweet spot is for me.  Had tons of fun farming with Forge on the PC.  He has one nasty Crusader specced in Fire Damage.  Has a 2h Sword that  called a Demon as a pet..  actually had a chain between him and the demon


Still want that sword
I just upgraded that Maximus for another with better stats smile.  She's at +71% fire damage now.

While waiting for 2.1 I've started playing hardcore.  Beat it over the weekend with a ranged holy crusader now working on getting him to 70 in HC adventure mode.  Had to stop because the ddos on Blizzard was making it too risky, had two DCs.  I play him completely different from my SC fire crusader.

There's lots of stuff in this game that applies to all characters. Off the top of my head, I can think of these:

  • Paragon levels
  • Crafting merchants
  • Stash
  • Recipes
  • Adventure mode
  • Challenges

One caveat,  hardcore characters have their own paragon and unlocks.

I played it but I got stuck:

Spoiler for Hiden:
After the baby in the sink version, I got stuck where the radio keeps repeating the story, but then the ghost voice cuts in, says a bunch of numbers, then says to look behind you. I couldn't figure out what to do after that

Spoiler for Hiden:
I believe that's the section where it says "gouge it out" on that one photo with a blue x, you need to hit the X button on the picture to rip the picture.

Some of the stuff is super obtuse, but very Kojima,  for instance when finding the ripped picture pieces
Spoiler for Hiden:
one of the pieces is in the options menu, and you need to go to options and hold down R3 to examine like you do in the hallway"

It's not a teaser that's designed to be completed. You play it until you can't figure out how to keep going, and then stop. The devs didn't expect anyone to complete the teaser within the first week, and people still haven't fully agreed on how you actually solve the game.

I'd say more it was designed to require internet collaboration to finish.  Think an actual video game of an ARG like I Love Bees.

It's also totally worth checking out even just for a bit to get a sense of the the atmosphere etc that they can accomplish, it's a pretty impressive little package, and everyone with a PS4 should load it up and make at least a few loops of the corridor.

I'm sure there was something, but I'm blanking on any that were announced as multiplatform and then changed pre-release.  I have  a foggy memory of there being at least  a case of this but can't recall what the game was at the moment.

It's partially wrong to even blame MS though, they are in a corner and are going to try and make plays.  In some ways the ire should be directed at SE for accepting the proposed deal and not MS.

Now Sony fans know how MS fans felt about the year long Destiny DLC exclusivity.

Microsoft has been playing the DLC timed exclusive game for years.  CoD map packs are always 3 months exclusive to Xbox.

That doesn't make it okay for Sony to do the same thing now, in my opinion.

But notice how Sony didn't pull the "exclusive DLC" card for their Gamescom conference? Maybe they're learning. Microsoft certainly didn't seem to have learned squat, and had another public statement explode in their face.

It was more a comment that Sony fans are well versed in it and it wasn't MS finally reversing the script.

In regards to Tomb Raider, it's important to note that it was announced as a multiplatform title as well.  Bayonetta 2 going Wii U caused some outrage as a multiplat game's sequel going exclusive, but Bayonetta 2 from the start was an exclusive, and also I as I noted above the game wasn't set to be made until Nintendo got behind it.

Spoils

Season 5 was easily the best season of the show's run. Can't imagine having had to wait a week between episodes.

I'm not a BB nuthugger as I think the first two seasons were pretty mediocre. However, when Gus came on the scene things really started picking up.

More spoilsies


Did you know that the Gus character wasn't even part of the original plan?  Tuco was supposed to be the main bad guy for a longer stretch, but the actor had to leave the show because of a conflict with other stuff he was filming.  They invented Gus to be a bad guy as opposite to Tuco's personality as possible, and they liked him so much they kept the character going.

Jesse was supposed to die the first season as well.
